PRV Stability Workshop

PRV Stability Workshop

This one-day workshop will provide practical methods for the identification and evaluation of high risk relief systems installations where potential PRV instability requires evaluation by engineering analysis. The workshop will review advanced developments in PRV stability and a worked example on how to evaluate and perform an engineering analysis when PRV instability is suspected will be presented. Facilitated and led by Georges A. Melhem, Ph.D., FAIChE, he is well known for his contributions to relief systems and PRV stability evaluation methods.
